The Rockies have been busy this evening. They traded Chris Iannetta to the Angels for Tyler Chatwood and agreed to terms with Ramon Hernandez on a two-year deal. Here are the rest of the day’s notes on the Rockies:

Rockies would like to acquire a player the Braves can use by giving the Braves a player that they can’t use. Cool story Rockies.

I agree . I Would rather keep Prado as the Braves everyday LFer instead of trading him for someone who won’t play but maybe half that in a platoon role . Doesn’t make much sense . The Braves have additional talents that they could add in a package for someone better .

Schwinden for Stewart do it up lol

Since they see Fowler as their CF I don’t see why they don’t just throw in Wheeler…

Neil Guzman

As a Rockies fan, I completely agree with you, tommy…but we all know how O’Dowd absolutely LOVES to over-value his prospects…Smith is, at best, a platoon player…I know most Rockies fans love him, but he’s expendable just like Spilly…gotta give something to get something…this is apparently lost upon O’Dowd though…

Jay212033

I’m just not understanding why he thinks Smith alone is worth Prado.

Christopher David

What caliber of pitcher do they want for Stewart though? I mean, his stock has got to be pretty diminished at this point.

John Adams

Give up Wheeler and the Braves might do it… but Seth Smith is a completely average player.  Martin Prado a couple years ago was 9th in NL MVP.  Really don’t see it happening without a major prospect from the Rockies.

Neil Guzman
3 years 9 months ago

Agreed…if Smith and one of Wheeler or Blackmon gets it done, then this deal should have already been made…being a Rockies fan can be maddening sometimes…

I have to ask a Rockies fan a question that I’ve always wondered…do you guys actually like that stupid dinosaur you have for a mascot?

progmatinee

good one. Do you enjoy ripping off a college football team for your cheer?

Tj Kobold
3 years 9 months ago

Do you know how long the Braves have been doing that as opposed to Florida State? Find me the dates to prove your point.

Nixa37

Deion brought it from FSU to the Braves.  At least that’s the story I heard.

bravesdude
3 years 9 months ago

That was the story I have always been told .

progmatinee
3 years 9 months ago

FSU has been doing it since the late 60s, according to Wikipedia (yeah I know). The Braves have been doing it since the 80s.

Phillies_Aces35

As much as I hate the Tomahawk Chop (and I truly do hate it) I prefer it to that Dinosaur.

To answer his question, I’ve read that Rockies fans hate it.

NYBravosFan10
3 years 9 months ago

Yeah because your stadiums quirk makes so much sense. The Liberty Bell doesn’t ring or even move so why does that monstrosity in the outfield go off after ever homer and victory?

Phillies_Aces35
3 years 9 months ago

Didn’t say they don’t make sense I just hate it. If I was a Braves fan or not a divisional rival, I wouldn’t mind it.

rundmc1981

It takes a proud man to get offended by someone questioning your dinosaur mascot. Kudos to you, good man.

I’m glad we have something to cheer for and really don’t care how we do it.

Ahh yes, Dinger…most Rockies fans I know can’t stand him…my son on the other hand likes him…I guess if I actually cared about mascots, cheers, etc. then I would actually care to give my opinion on him…I suppose I’m indifferent on the subject…

3 years 9 months ago

If the Braves trade Prado, it will be for OF help.  The Braves really need a RH bat, and the Rockies don’t haven’t anyone that meets that criteria.

how about to the cardinals for craig?

NYBravosFan10

I’d do it but Wren probably won’t

we’ll give you Teheran if you give us Adam Wainwright back. I think we have the receipt for JD Drew somewhere in a filing cabinet…

well i feel like that would be unfair to you, we’ll just take that no name second basemen you have, i think his name is uggla? and oh yeah, we know you guys don’t like him so we’ll also help you out by takin hanson

rundmc1981

I’d love that, but STL isn’t going to do that especially before Pujols signs because Craig is their backup plan (Berkman to 1B, Craig to RF).

I think Dan O’Dowd is just being another word for a donkey right now.

There moderators, is that better?

I don’t want anything the Rockies have…

NYBravosFan10

i wouldn’t mind CarGo or Tulo…but yeah I know what you mean. The clubs just don’t match up

rundmc1981
3 years 9 months ago

If we can pay Tulo in Atlanta Hawks tickets, Varsity coupons, and vouchers to the Pink Pony and maybe a promise to be on Ludacris’ next album could we afford him. If he wants cash, he’ll stay in Denver.

Have available, anyways. Yeah, Carlos Gonzalez would be a dream.

rundmc1981
3 years 9 months ago

And only in that dream could the Braves afford CarGon’s contract, unless he suddenly becomes Mike Hampton 2.0 overnight. 

BaseballLogic_Braves

Neil Guzman

Come on now, you mean to tell us that you wouldn’t want Tulo or CarGo?  Obviously they aren’t available, but if they were I’m sure most fans would want one or both of those guys on their team…

John Adams
3 years 9 months ago

I still think the Braves are going to get Carlos Quentin.  White Sox need pitching and Braves are in love with Quentin.  Maybe it is just wishful thinking…

NYBravosFan10
3 years 9 months ago

we’ve been connected with Carlos Quentin for the longest time but Kenny Williams has a man-crush on him and will probably ask for Teheran, Delgado, Vizcaino, Minor, Heyward, Freeman, Chipper, John Schuerholtz, Phil Niekro and Tyler Flowers in return.

BaseballLogic_Braves

But… they already have T-Flo

dont he already have tyler flowers…lol..thats true  thnk wlliams loves him some carlos…i woud like to see him in the braves outfield way befoe some of te other crap they have been rumored to be interested in…

NYBravosFan10

the Flowers thing was part of the joke. To the best of my knowledge, Flowers is still in AAA so Kenny Williams prolly forgot that he traded for him 3 years ago

John Adams

Haha I know.  Alot of what I have read from White Sox blogs is that they would be happy to move on and let him go in a trade.  They apparently have prospects ready to play in the mlb and he is blocking a spot.  He fits with what the Braves neead and we do have the pieces to get him.

NYBravosFan10
3 years 9 months ago

isn’t he blocking Dayan Viciedo? Or is that Alex Rios?

John Adams
3 years 9 months ago

I’m pretty sure it is Carlos that is blocking in him.

isnt Tyler Flowers with the Wsox already? or am I thinking about a different guy?

NYBravosFan10

see my above responses to the same question

Brv Rocks

Yes, the Braves sent Flowers to the Sox for Javy Vazquez.

rundmc1981

Please let’s move on from Quentin. Guy is overrated. What do we need with another offensive threat less than a quarter of his ABs and defensive liability? There’s a reason we’re not interested in Josh Willingham.

WrigleyTerror37
3 years 9 months ago

If they want a tripple A or Double A pitcher, thats a low price. Hell if im the cubs id send over two. But my guess the Rockies want a quality Sp pitcher.

why not just do Prado goes to Rockies, Street goes to Blue Jays and Eric Thames goes to the Braves. Does this sound like a fair deal?

John Adams
3 years 9 months ago

No Thames is not an upgrade over Prado. There is upside on Thames but he might not even hit for 20 homeruns a season.  Prado can hit 20 homeruns in a health season and for average.

YanksFanSince78
3 years 9 months ago

Prado has never hit more than 15 in any season so why is he a lock for 20 again? In his first full season in the minors, Thames hit 27. In 2011 he hit 7 in the minors and another 11 just from June-Oct when he was called up. That’s just 2 less than what Prado hit in 551 AB and his 4th mlb season. Prado is more likely to hit 20 hrs for what reason again?

Doesn’t seem odd that a team in need of another bat would be willing to trade Prado if they saw him as a 20 hr guy? 

John Adams
3 years 9 months ago

Because he is coming in to his prime and does have the ability to hit 20 homeruns.  Never said lock so don’t put words in someones mouth ok. Also Thames numbers are in a hitter friendly park and I wouldn’t consider Turner Field as one. Just don’t think he would fit at all, being left handed and all.

3 years 9 months ago

As nice as that idea sounds, the Braves REALLY need a RH bat in their lineup. Not that I would be opposed to figuring out a way to work that out.

How about Yunel instead? [/sad brave fan joke]

Chipper_is_GOD
3 years 9 months ago

None of us even liked Yunel (Or I didn’t)

I never wanted Furcal to go away, and then we have some huge Cuban guy who looks like Scooby Doo (He does, don’t deny it) Who was really streaky playing for us.

I just want Furcal back :(

NYPOTENCE
3 years 9 months ago

It doesn’t matter what you wanted the fact is that the Braves traded away one of the better SS in the league and now they have a huge hole up the middle.

Chipper_is_GOD

We had Jack Wilson, he was good (Sarcasm)

3 years 9 months ago

Yea he kinda did behehe.

Well if we’re wishing, I want Elvis Andrus back.

Brv Rocks
3 years 9 months ago

Yunel wasn’t streaky AT ALL.  He had one bad 1/2 of a season, the rest of the time he was one of the best hitting shortstops in baseball.

Brv Rocks
3 years 9 months ago

No.  Thames isn’t very good.

who else thinks it would be funny if they posted a completely bs story of a big trade, watched us all go nuts on the comments, and then like a day later posted that it was fake

facebook once posted that Derek Lowe had been traded for Johan Santana on April Fool’s Day

OklahomaBrave

How about Tehran, prado for smith, wheeler and arenado!

3 years 9 months ago

Toss in Tulo and Wren would think about it.

3 years 9 months ago

Teheran isn’t going in a trade for prospects. 

Neil Guzman
3 years 9 months ago

Umm, no…

Bret Pittenger
3 years 9 months ago

the Rockies will not trade Arenado.

3 years 9 months ago

are you really a Braves fan?

OklahomaBrave
3 years 9 months ago

Should insert Delgado instead of Teheran. That being said, do you know who Nolan arenado is.

3 years 9 months ago

Prado for Fowler fills needs of both teams. Fowler can play any OF position and will be our future CF if Bourn isn’t resigned. 

Brv Rocks
3 years 9 months ago

I don’t want to see Prado traded at all.  However, if the Rockies would send Fowler to the Braves then that would be an acceptable trade.  There is no chance the Braves trade a right handed all-star 2B for a left-handed platoon outfielder like Smith.

If Byrnes can talk anyone into taking Hudson, he should get Executive of the Year immediately.
